Diabetic Recipe - Holiday
Source: Better Homes and Gardens Diabetic Living, Thanksgiving Favorites 2006

Roast Herbed Turkey


1 10-12 lb. turkey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 orange
2 tbsp snipped fresh sage
1 tbsp honey


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse inside of turkey; pat dry. Season cavity with salt and pepper. Pull neck skin to back; fasten with skewer. Tuck ends of drumsticks under band of skin across tail. If there is no band of skin, tie drumsticks securely to tail. Twist wing tips under back. Place turkey, breast side up on rack in shallow roasting pan. Brush with oil. Cover loosely with foil. Roast for 2 3/4 to 3 hours (3 1/4 to 3 1/2 hours if stuffed) or until juices run clear (180 degrees) and center of stuffing (if using) is 165 degrees. During last 45 minutes of roasting, remove foil. Cut band of skin or string between drumsticks so thighs cook evenly. Remove turkey from oven. Meanwhile, halve and juice orange. In small bowl, combine orange juice, sage, and honey. Brush mixture over turkey. Cover turkey with foil; let stand for 15 minutes before carving. If desired, garnish with additional orange halves and sage leaves.
